State Sen. Eldridge cares more about the safety of illegal immigrants than Mass. citizens

September 4th, 2017

The Mass SJC, in one of its liberal modes, ruled last month to place the residents of this Commonwealth at risk by releasing illegal aliens subject to federal detainer requests. The SJC decided for the rest of us, that illegal immigrants charged or even convicted elsewhere of even the most serious or violent crimes could not be held by Massachusetts law enforcement one minute for ICE to act on the detainer.

President should not have pardoned Arpaio

September 4th, 2017

With so much tragedy and horror in the world that is out of our control, it is appalling to me that the president added to the pain and mistreatment suffered by the victims of former Sheriff Arpaio by pardoning him with the simple and erroneous statement that Arpaio was convicted for “doing his job.”

Drive sober or get pulled over

August 18th, 2017

Grafton – With the approval by the state’s voters last November to legalize recreational marijuana, many local police departments have shared concerns regarding a potential increase in impaired drivers. In Grafton, thanks to a grant from the Highway Safety Division of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, the police department will soon be able to increase the number of patrols on the streets.

Making a run for it?

August 11th, 2017

Nation – Only six months into the Trump presidency and the political pundits are already speculating about who will – and will not – run for the Oval Office in 2020. The president himself appears to be campaigning already for a second term while both Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vice President Mike Pence have strongly denied their intentions to run. However, if we have learned anything at all about the game of politics, we should not believe everything we hear. Only time will tell who will be throwing their hat into the race.

Don’t let the door hit you…
